August was a busy month for the boys and girls at Team Nemesis with back to back shows and competitions every weekend. It was a big month for Muay Thai Melbourne with shows like Powerplay Promotions, Warriors Way and Rise all in the Same month. Elliott fought on Powerplay 27 and stopped his opponent in round 1 after delivering a punishing barrage of powerful boxing combinations. The fight was ruled a TKO after his opponent couldn’t continue because of pins and needles in his hands. It was set to be a great match up against a tough opponent.
Christian had his first amateur fight against a tough opponent on Warriors Way but lost on a points decision. It was a good technical fight from both involved and great to see Christian step it up to the next level. A bright future for this young man.

On top of all the big pro shows Hammer’s Interclub challenge also held there novice event for aspiring young fighters wanting to test there skills in the fires of competition.
